[Image taken 17.4.21] New Walk junction with Blue Bridge Lane. Covid-19 safety information on a banner on railings where people will see it - at the point they pass on foot or cycle. This is good practice. But it doesn't extend to signage. ... [more]

Closed for motor vehicles - but Cambridgeshire highways department can't understand the distinction.

[Image taken 6.4.21] Clifton Backies, York. These signs (installed 2020) at Clifton Backies (https://cliftonbackies.org.uk/) are attractive and informative. I'd like to see a version at the cycle-ped-wheelchair entrance to New Earswick vill ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Clifton Backies, York. There are several of these in the Reserve. This one is at the entrance from Sutton Way. See also (Clifton Backies board): #166682 (New Earswick): #166666

No unauthorised bike trails!

'No Turn Left except cycles' on Niddrie Road at Torrisdale Street.

Flashing electronic signs has been installed at some junctions on Victoria Road to warn motorists of the presence of cyclists. This is activated by a detector in the cycle track.

A one-way sign used on Argyle Street where there is a contraflow cycle lane. The vehicles parked in the layby ahead will have been driven in the bus lane.

Sign about temporary closures when races are running at Newton Abbot racecourse - this is well managed at York racecourse, there's no reason to close the route for more than a few minutes at a time.

No cycling on the promenade at Dawlish - NCN route 2 ends here, with the options of continuing on the A road through Teignmouth or taking some steep lanes inland to Newton Abbot.

Steep slope ahead at the end of the bridleway from Dawlish Warren to Dawlish on NCN route 2

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway - end of shared-use footway entering Dawlish Warren on NCN route 2

Beware pedestrians joining NCN route 2 at the shared-use bridge over the railway.

[Image taken 1.4.21] Tesco Extra, Clifton Moor, York. This toast rack (cycle parking) is well signposted. Alas the 'Toblerone'-designs don't support cycles. As a result many people use the railings around the trolley parks instead. See also ... [more]

AV/NCN 21 near Salfords

[Image taken 8.10.14] Banos, Ecuador. (Actual location unknown.) Comparta La Via - Share the road - sign. See the blog post: http://e2e.bike/other/ecuador-village-life-banos/ For a sign from Trinidad see: #166528. (For 'Do not overtake ... [more]

[Image taken 31.3.21] Hurrah! A No vehicle idling sign. It's at a bus stop on Museum Street, York. Clutter be damned! Let's hope it's the first of very many. And that it leads to attitude and behaviour changes among all drivers, professiona ... [more]

The former A625 at Mam Tor, abandoned due to landslips but still passable by bike.

[Image taken 25.3.21] Rougier Street, York. Northern Gas Networks corona board with a clear company name and freephone number. See also: #166254

Access to college boathouses (and cycle parking) - the sign asks cyclists to dismount to avoid dislodging the new stones.

Except Cycles plates needed, as usual

Two End of Cycleway signs - though there's no difference between the footways north and south of Metcalfe Road.

[Image taken 20.3.21] Tanner Row, York. Signs: 1 x No stopping 6pm-6am except police vehicles. 1 x No waiting sign 6am-6pm. (See also: #165873, #164847) Vehicles parked (no occupant), 'waiting' or delivering/loading here creates a haz ... [more]

No Entry except buses and good vehicles on this short-cut - cyclists can use the shared-use path to the left but still, it would be make sense to officially allow them to use the road (like the cyclist in the distance).

The old road is only a dead-end for motor vehicles - cycles and pedestrians have an underpass beneath the A1307. I'm a bit surprised the priority hasn't been changed as virtually all the motor traffic takes the road to the right.

Cyclists Dismount sign for ford in Hilton

The farm access road from Bar Hill to Girton is now signposted as a bridleway - for a lot of cyclists this will be a better route to/from Cambridge than the cycleway by the A1307 past the crematorium. It's also marked as a dead end, however ... [more]

[Image taken 18.3.21] Sign on shared use bridge over the Foss on Heworth Green, York. See also #165645

[Image taken 18.3.21] Shared use bridge over the Foss on Heworth Green, York with sign advising people on cycles to give way to pedestrians. See also #165644

Excellent practice, making it clear the roadworks at Hagg [not Haggs] Bridge only block it to motor vehicles. Until this appeared cyclists had to go on for half a mile hoping they'd get through.

Excellent practice, making it clear the roadworks at Hagg Bridge only block it to motor vehicles.

Cambridgeshire Highways just will not understand that a modal filter is not a road closure - Except Cycles plates needed here.

No Lorries allowed in Cowlairs Park.

"Cyclists Dismount And Use Footway" - the Sighthill diversion route appears to have been signed along the footway of various roads, none of which are actually signed as being shared use, so why dismount here?

[Image taken 15.3.21.] Exhibition Square, York (5/5). The new - March 2021 - information totem (visible side-on between the statue and the traffic lights on the left) adds clutter. (See also #160828, #160855, #160860, #160862.)

Cyclists Dismounts sign at temporary access arrangements and path - but cycling isn't allowed here anyway.

[Streetview image from November 2020] 'Give way to oncoming cycles' sign on Herbrand Street, London WC1 at its junction with Tavistock Place. I believe this sign could make the cycling experience safer and less intimidating in locations in ... [more]

Why are these crazy cyclist dismount signs still up? What would it take to get rid of them. Anglia Retail Park. @TWTGSuffolk https://t.co/qFTqFi8voH

The newly reversed cycle contraflow is marked on the carriageway but not yet on the signs.

The city council has accepted that they need to point out that Mill Road businesses are open, but not that the road is open except to motor vehicles (other than buses).

Signage

I think this means that pedestrians and cyclists are sharing the same space for about ten metres - but it shouldn't be necessary to dismount.

Cyclists Please Obey Traffic Signals - motor vehicles are still turning across Histon Road

Firstly this road is still two-way for cycling, and secondly I'm not convinced it's a one-way road just because of the pop-up closure at the far end - I suspect residents may still come out here.

New cycle contraflow sign following the installation of a modal filter on Panton St.

A shame there isn't an exemption for cycles

No Motor Vehicles except for loading at specific times.

Cycle contraflow to the left (currently blocked, apparently for Crossrail construction)

I approve of this message 🤣 https://t.co/TYjSUrvEoS

I think this means they want us to ride on the pavement.

Cornwall's first mass vaccination centre for Covid-19 is in the middle of nowhere (Stithians Fairground) so cars are pretty much vital.

Signs for both segregated and unsegregated shared use; they can't both be correct!

Paved cut-through in Little Shelford - no cycling

Paved cut-through in Little Shelford - no cycling

Classic NIMBYism - No East-West Rail Here. There's next to no chance of a new railway being built through these villages.

Nonsense! It's a through route for cycles (and why is there a 50-metre gap in the shared-use provision here?)

A full red light northbound, just the normal red man southbound - if it was deliberate, it would presumably mean that cyclists could cross on red southbound, but not northbound.

So what is allowed on this pathway? The sign says no horses, no bikes and no walkers.

The new one-way system in Hyndland now makes it difficult for cyclists to use the quiet streets to avoid the main roads. No exemptions have been made to permit two-way cycling.

The 'No Entry' signs at the Novar Drive Fire Path now have 'except cyclists' plates (instead of the correct 'except cycles' plates), but the 'No Through Road' signs are unchanged.

A post marking the location of Trinity College Conduit an historic method of providing fresh water to colleges.

A sign outside a large house on Madingley Road pleads for bike lanes.

At least one sign now accepts that a modal filter on Panton St isn't a closure to all vehicles.

The width restriction has been changed to a No Motor Vehicles restriction.

The Footpath Closed signs have reappeared - the path is flooded, but cycles can pass.

No Cycling on the Footway signs to allow social distancing.

Green End, Comberton

Vehicle speed monitor in Babraham.

The usual rubbish from Cambridgeshire Highways - the whole point of a modal filter, by definition, is that the road is not totally closed, only to motor vehicles.

End of shared-use route from the A30 interchange towards Camborne

Cyclists Dismount signs on the bridge over the A30, Camborne - pointless, as the width doesn't change.

Start of paved route to the A30 underpass and Camborne - many people ignore the request and walk on the edge of the field.

This sign does not appear to be associated with any works and no similar signs are encountered when approaching from the opposite direction.

Panton Street, Cambridge Conflicting signage: one way arrows and a sign that shows contraflow cycling.

The signs can't all be correct!

CYCLES NOT TO BE LEFT HERE

Hurray signage that is for pedestrians and cyclists 👏 And the wasp bike man on patrol with his white noise radio.

Presumably due to the modal filter on Panton St, Norwich St will reverse direction on 20/1/21.

An upside-down sign which says No Dogs. It previously was an unofficial-looking 20mph sign, see #107294. It has been like this for several months. I think that the glue that was holding the 20mph over-sign in place has given up reveal ... [more]

Biden my path! - Panton Street opens to two way cycling on #inaugaurationday hurray! The sign has 'trail' rather than 'trial'.

Just one more "Trams Only" sign ought to do it... @ShowMeASignBryn https://t.co/RoYr8lc19x

New sign allowing electric cars in the bus lane on the Elizabeth Way bridge - this is supposed to be a response to Covid-19 and to government funding to boost active travel and public transport.... by slowing buses and putting cyclists at ... [more]

Appeal for witnesses of a “Cycle Accident” on 16/12/19 over a year ago.

[Image taken 19.12.20] Except cycles sign installed mid-December 2020 on Clifford Street, York. As part of the covid-19 distancing measures, Coppergate was closed in the eastbound direction to all traffic except cycles. However, people on C ... [more]

Beware of other road users! Extraordinary sign.

Of course, the road was only closed to motor vehicles.

Poster backing the changes to Mill Road bridge.

Only for cars - an Except Pedestrians and Cycles sign would be useful on this route to Waitrose

The usual nonsense - the signs refer to motor vehicles only.

The 'No Entry' ahead on Woodside Crescent could have 'except cycles' added to permit cycle access to the Charing Cross footbridge. Plenty of space.

Footpath sign and start of improved link to Histon Road

Six months on, the path closed/deviation signs are still up.

Misguided sign
